Three arrested in stolen property ring in Calgary

The Calgary Police Service and the RCMP have seized thousands of pounds of stolen copper wire, as well as vehicles, weapons and drugs from a rural residence northeast of the city.

On Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2010, officers from numerous areas of the CPS and the RCMP executed a search warrant on a property near Delacour, on Township Road 254.

The following stolen property was located:

Approximately 3,000 pounds of copper wire, valued at $7,500

The copper wire was stolen from a substation near Balzac, the truck from Penhold, the Bear Bear ATV from Brooks, the dune buggy from Priddis, and the John Deere ATV from Brooks.

The copper wire has since been returned to the company from which it was stolen. The rest of the property will be returned to the rightful owners as soon as possible.

Some photos of the stolen property are available on the City of Calgary Newsroom. More will be posted later this afternoon.

Six people were on the property at the time, and three have since been charged. The three remaining were released without charge.
